Suspending and Unsuspending Items

In certain situations, you might need to temporarily halt the progress of an Item through the Order Management workflow. For example, you might want to hold up an Item that has not yet been Approved for sale because you are still working on sourcing it. You can stop an Item from continuing through the workflow by suspending it. Similarly, you can allow a suspended Item to continue through the workflow by unsuspending it. To suspend one or more Items, follow these steps:

  1. In the Inventory accordion menu, select the Inventory Manager.
  2. Browse or search for Items as described in Searching for Items.
  3. Select one or more Items in the list using the checkboxes.
  4. Select Suspend Items from the Run an action on these ___ Items drop-down list.
  5. Click GO. Suspended Items are highlighted with a yellow background in Item lists.

To unsuspend one or more Items, follow these steps:

  1. In the Inventory accordion menu, select the Inventory Manager.
  2. Browse or search for Items as described in Searching for Items. You can select Suspended from the Quick Search drop-down list in the search form to restrict the search to suspended Items.
  3. Select one or more Items in the list using the checkboxes.
  4. Select Unsuspend Items from the Run an action on these ___ Items drop-down list.
  5. Click GO. Unsuspended Items are no longer highlighted with a yellow background in Item lists.
